More Garden Produce!
What a relief to have cooler weather and rain in the forecast! Such a welcome rain Sunday evening. I hope we get more to help the farmers, not to mention our lawns, trees and gardens! Unfortunately our tomatoes didn’t do well this year. We only planted two plants and that usually provides us with what we need for eating, but not this year. Good thing we have our farmer’s market.
Here is a unique recipe to use the delicious tomato most of us enjoy every summer!
4 medium ripe tomatoes
1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
3 Tbsp olive oil, or other cooking oil
sprinkle of pepper
2 Tbsp brown sugar
1 cup cream
Slice tomatoes 1/3 inch thick, dredge in flour and fry in oil until brown on both sides. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and the brown sugar. Place on platter. Add one tablespoon flour to the drippings (add a little butter or oil if you need more). Blend, add cream and cook until thick. Pour over tomatoes and serve. You may sprinkle on chopped parsley or basil if you wish.
Enjoy the cooler weather and the Martin County Fair and have a great week!
